God's way is to choose faith. To live by His Spirit. To wait expectantly on Him to come through. To rest within in Christ Jesus. To find strength in that rest. To wait expectantly for God to work things out.
The world's way is to choose fear. Fear takes on many forms. They include (but aren't limited to): worry, fretting, anger, manipulation, rage, constant need for control; escapism, materialism, ego, self-centeredness, selfishness, hoarding, stinginess. All of these characteristics are rooted in fear -- fear of running out; fear of losing control; fear of failing; fear of reality, etc., etc., etc.
Paul says it like this in Romans 8:6-7: "For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace, because the mind set on flesh is hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so;"
Jesus says in Matthew 12:30, "He who is not with Me is against Me; and he who does not gather with Me scatters."
There are days you might have to choose faith every 30 seconds because your brain keeps going back to worry. There are months when holding onto faith is so terribly hard, but we gotta do it. We gotta get into our Bibles and read and develop deep roots in the Word and in Faith and let the Word change our perspectives on life.
Hebrews 11 is a great chapter to read. It's called the Faith Chapter. The first three verses say, "Now faitth is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. For by it the men of old gained approval. By faith we understand that the worlds were prepared by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things which are visible."
God "calls into being that which does not exist." Romans 4:17d
God can come through in ways we cannot even fathom. Two stories come to mind. In C.S. Lewis' Prince Caspian Aslan's people are being defeated badly. The end is near and there is no way they can triumph. Suddenly, the trees and the land come to life and defeat the enemy. It was a victory unheard of. There's no way Aslan's people would have seen that coming.
Another book by Robin McKinley called Chalice defeat to the enemy to include death is a sure thing. A sudden unexpected victory occurs -- one no one would have expected from an impossible source. I read that ending over and over for it gives great hope.
God's answers come from crazy places in crazy ways -- impossible ways. Choose Him and His ways. They can't be controlled just like God can't be controlled. But His ways are so much more creative than anything this world can throw our way.
